I don't believe Google is particularly supportive of allowing
third-parties (like us) to use their search infrastructure.  All of
the search-related APIs they used to provide are slowly going away and
not being replaced, as far as I can tell.

If you just need to search images (and not Google Image Search in
particular), Bing's API appears to be supported and not about to go
away.  ( )

You could, in theory, make requests to Google just like a web browser
and parse the resulting HTML, but that tends to be fragile and prone
to break.  I believe it also violates Google's Terms of Service.
